Mapping Software

This is the second Product Survey on Mapping Software, the first having been published in February 2004. Support for web-based services is becoming increasingly relevant, including within an interactive environment, for example with links to GPS. However, paper-based visualisation with support in the printing process is still of considerable significance. Visualisation and presentation is the final stage of any activity and process involving geo-data and geo-information. As a result, designers and developers of mapping software have to address an abundance of issues stemming from previous stages in the geo-information processing cycle. These include interoperability, the wealth of geo-reference systems, de... (read more)

Lidar Rectification Software

The Optech Lidar Mapping Suite (LMS) version 2.0, for Airborne Laser Terrain Mapper (ALTM) clients, has been released. The suite offers a new workflow designed for the production environment. Incorporating a fully-automated batch-mode capability, Optech LMS enables simultaneous processing of multi-mission data collects, and includes multi-threaded and distributed processing capabilities to further increase processing efficiency. A new lidar rectification module provides additional value by maximising and quantifying project-wide accuracies. According to Michael Sitar, Optech's Airborne Survey products manager, optimizing lidar data accuracies by minimising flight-line to flight-line variations is a standard workflow process. By incorporating proprietary lidar optical models, Optech... (read more)
